The Pakistan Hub aims to provide research focus in a country at the leading edge of development thinking and practice and is centered on a long-term partnership between IDS and the highly regarded Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). It convenes diverse perspectives from within Pakistan and globally, bringing together researchers; civil society organisations; government institutions; communities and global actors. By encouraging collaboration, knowledge sharing, mutual learning and partnerships, it aims to strengthen development thinking and practice including policy impact and generate actionable solutions to challenges from climate change to poverty and injustice.
The hub covers a broad range of themes, spanning governance; social protection and disaster risk management; gender; agriculture, food and nutrition; education; and other broad development issues. You can also find outputs on freedom of religion or belief, related to Pakistan, in our Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development (CREID) collection.
The Pakistan Hub is part of the IDS International Initiatives that include Brazil, China, Europe, and Ghana. For more information visit the IDS website.
